Your journey

Day 1

Ride of your life

  • Leave Tromsø at 09:00 from Scandic Ishavshotel to the husky farm, during a 2 hour scenic drive to the winter wonderland of the northern region.

  • After arriving at the camp, you will meet the dogs and start preparing for your adventure. The experienced guides will teach you how to ride your sled safely before we head out into the wilderness. We explore the area and stop for pictures. The sledding lasts around 1 to 1,5 hours. After heading back, the host at the husky kennel awaits you with delicious hot local food, based on Arctic commodities.

  • Afterwards you make your way to the Glass Igloo, around 30 minutes, so enjoy the scenery. Once there, you can check-in and enjoy the unique accommodation and surroundings.

  • If ordered as an option, you enjoy a locally produced and prepared dinner in the traditional warm and cosy guesthouse.

  • In the evening, get mesmerised by the surroundings and sky. Hopefully, you will see the magical northern lights dance for you.

Day 2

Wake up in pure nature

  • Enjoy a relaxing morning, with full breakfast including locally made jams (if ordered).

  • If you want more fun: add a Moose Safari or snowmobile trip to the morning of your second day.

  • If chosen, your transfer at 14:00h brings you back to Tromsø city, where you have some time to explore.

 

Glass igloo experience

The 360 degree igloos, 2 hours drive inland from Tromsø, are made to be luxury hotel rooms with a twin bed, two comfortable armchairs, tables, cosy light, music, and heating. If it gets very cold, they are still warm enough to sleep in, but you also have the opportunity to move into the guest house to sleep.
You will be sitting in the midst of nature, with a perfect view to everything from wildlife to starry nights, northern lights, or maybe a raging storm.

​​

The glass igloos have all the privacy you want. and you can close the curtains if you prefer. There is mood lighting in the surrounding trees to guide you on the property during the dark hours, but you can easily turn them off via a handy remote control if you prefer complete darkness, only guided by the light of the stars, the moon and hopefully the northern lights.
